OPULENT AND PLAYFUL
London: Matthew Williamson’s Pre Fall’14 collection drew inspiration from the English eccentric aesthetic by capturing the distinctive romantic and playful spirit. Form-accentuating shapes were a key feature along with sharp tailoring that contrasted with easy flowing column gowns. A playful William Morris–inspired print featuring wild strawberries was the signature print for the collection. – Lizzy Bowring
